Welcome to the forum.

Why is the pump suspect? Have the pressures been measured per the FSM or the ATSG A999 Manual showing the pump to be the problem.

The pump is usually "bullet proof", only subject to wear from excessive usage.

1998 auto trans problem

I appreciate the reply,

I am no trans expert, so I could be off base with expecting pump failure, however ultimately if its anything internal with the transmission its still going to need to be rebuilt/replaced correct?

I have a buddy who is going to come over Saturday to help with the pressure testing as I don't have a 300psi gauge. I do have the alldata diagnostic guide for hydraulic testing however. and that will give me some clarity as to what is going on.

trans level seems overfull and doesn't change levels on the stick whether the jeep is in neutral on or with engine off. fluid is not dark or smell burnt.
the shifter cable is intact and does release the vehicle from park and let me roll the jeep around, and every slightly changes the idle level when shifting gears from park and back into park or neutral.

the jeep only has 104k miles on it so wouldn't think it was overly abused, but I have no backstory on this jeep so I am trying to prepare myself into spending some money to get it in driving condition so I can enjoy this bad boy.
but If I am missing a key area to check that may be causing my angst, please let me know and I will be glad to correct my mistake.

My suggestion would be to follow the diagnostic section in the FSM or the ATSG manual. Both are complete for all aspects of the transmission, diagnostic, service, repair, disassembly, assembly and maintenance. I'm not familiar w/ Alldata, but it may also be acceptable.

There are a dozen pages of tests listed that will ID the problem(s). For mine, two pressure gauges are required.

There are LOTS of other diagnostic tests besides measuring the pressures.

I've observed that frequently the diagnostic steps are skipped or abbreviated, moving right to dropping the pan.

Lots can be observed / checked once the pan is dropped, but lots of potentially useful information is lost by not completing the diagnostic steps.

There are many failure modes that require rebuild. Others can be resolved by less extreme measures.

This topic shows my 46RH rebuild. It may be useful for examining similar internals.
